A body has been found in Bullhead City, Arizona, as authorities — including the FBI — search for an 8-year-old girl who has been missing for more than 40 hours, police said Wednesday.

At a news conference late Wednesday afternoon, police said it was too early to know whether the body is that of Isabella Grogan-Cannella, known as "Bella," who went to bed Monday night but wasn't there when her parents went to check on her shortly before 1:30 a.m. Tuesday. They said there were no signs of a break-in but that kidnapping was a possibility, and that they were searching the nearby Colorado River.

Isabella is about 4 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 85 pounds. She has shoulder-length dark blonde hair and blue eyes, and she was last wearing a green ruffled tank top and dark shorts.
